    IMO: Unless the Lee manual comes free with the kit?
    Order the Lyman #49 reloading manual instead.

    Much more useful for a wide variety of bullet types you can actually identify.
    Lee is kind of pretty vague in the area.

    Great deal, good press. Buy a bunch of the bushing. You will need 3 or 4 for each caliber you reload.

    check the price at graf's. Compare the end cost there with the same cost from Midway....

    And, for chuckles, do the same with Midsouth....

    Nah, I don't think I'll try and talk you out of it.
    Welcome aboard and happy loading.

    I bought a "pre-Breech Lock" kit and wish it was available when I got mine. Bushings with dies preset to pop in and out - how great is that. Next, if you are like me, you will get a Lee Precision Classic Turret press - I got two kits and love them both but I got a "pre -Classic Turret" kit - so I missed out on both innovations. I would for sure get Modern Reloading by Richard Lee if you are using Lee Precision equipment.

    Wait violet, don't do it... (In my best Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka voice)

    Have fun. And... be prepared. I have not been able to bring myself to spend a penny on ANYTHING other then reloading supplies and equipment since I got the bug :)

    Get the Lee book and the Lyman book. Lee will only set you back another $15.
